Belinda lived in a little white house,
with a little black kitten and a little grey mouse,
and a little yellow dog and a little red wagon,
and a realio,trulio,little pet dragon.
now the name of the little black kitten was ink,
and the little grey mouse,she called him blink,
and the little yellow dog was sharp as mustard,
but the dragon was a coward,and she called him custard.
belinda paled,and she cried help!help!
but mustard fled with a terrified yelp,
ink trickled down to the bottom of the household,
and little mouse blink strategically mouseholed.
but up jumped custard,snorting like an engine,
clashed his tail like irons in dungeon,
with a clatter and a clank and a jangling squirm,
he went at the pirate like a robin at a worm.
